public virtual string InvalidPasswordErrorMessage { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The message displayed when the password entered is not valid. The default is "Please enter a valid password." The default text for the control is localized based on the server's current locale.

The Membership class membership provider specified in the MembershipProvider property can restrict the passwords that it will accept. The InvalidPasswordErrorMessage property is displayed when the password entered by the user does not meet the requirements for a password set by the membership provider. The actual requirements for the password are determined by the membership provider, and might be different for different providers.

The value of this property, when set, can be saved automatically to a resource file by using a designer tool. For more information, see LocalizableAttribute and ASP.NET Globalization and Localization.

The following code example changes the InvalidPasswordErrorMessage property for a membership provider that requires a password containing both lowercase and uppercase characters. The actual membership provider is not shown.
